Staffing & Recruitment



Estate Management Solutions’

Luxury Household Staffing

Our years of hands-on experience in Private Service has given us the unique ability to best identify your staffing needs and find the perfect candidate for your home.  Placement services start with a site visit and property walk (preferred) or a phone conversation with the Principal to identify the home’s needs and the preferences of the position.  Once an engagement letter is signed and our retainer fee of $1500 (non-refundable) is received, we begin our exhaustive search for the perfect person for your home.  Qualified candidates will be presented with a short synopsis of our interview observations and a detailed outline of their skill sets.  Prior to an in-person interview, an open-source background check will be done on the candidate to ensure the safety of you and your home.  Once a candidate is chosen, and both parties accept the offer letter, we begin reference checks and our background screening process, which includes a Behavior Analysis Interview.  

Areas We Specialize In

Chief of Staff

The Chief of Staff is very experienced, savvy, and resourceful in all aspects of household and staff management.

Property Managers

Managing the grounds of large estates requires special knowledge and insight. The Caretaker or Property Manager is the one who oversees the maintenance and upkeep of your property down to your taste, standards, and vision.

Family Assistants

Similar to that of a Personal Assistant, the Family Assistant handles all the household duties that the family needs help with.

Private Chauffeur/Drivers

A Private Chauffeur/Driver is responsible for the safe and efficient transportation of their principals, members of the family and guests alike.

Director of Residences

Directors of Residences, Directors of Estates, Estate Directors, and/or the Chief of Staff are similar in nature. They tend to have a more administrative role within an estate that has or is establishing a Single Family Office (SFO).

Household Managers

A Household Manager is responsible for handling the daily operations of a household and responding to the homeowner’s needs.

Private Chefs

A Private Chef often possesses a formal culinary education, has been an apprentice in fine dining establishments, and/or works exclusively for a private family or individual.


Although housekeeping duties vary between households, a Housekeeper’s primary role is to handle all the cleaning and organization in the home. They are also tasked with preparing meals, running errands and accompanying vendors to their work areas.

Estate Managers

The position of an Estate Manager is more administrative in nature. This individual is the main point of contact between the Principal and the service environments they own, as well as, the staff that run them.

Domestic Couples

Domestic Couples occupy a unique place in the constellation of private service, providing each service required to run a household and maintain a home.


Originally, Butlers were primarily limited to the Food & Beverage department of the home.  Today, Butlers wear far more hats and bring a sense of elegance to the residence.


A Houseman is a jack-of-all-trades position capable of filling service gaps inside or outside the home.


When you add a professional Laundress to your home, your household not only enjoys clean and organized laundry, but every linen and soft surface is professionally handled as well.
